Yes, I was feeling quite horrible about my poor kitties. I take my responsibilities towards other living creatures very seriously. They are dependent on me and can't just decide to go somewhere else. Today is better, all of them ate normally and other things seem to be normal also.
Love the slow cooker! I think I got just the right one. It is nice to look at, stainless steel and black, has an oval shape that is easy to handle, perfect size for me, not too big, not too small. Very simple to set, and it changes to warm for 8 hours at the end of the cooking time.
Just had a thought - I wonder if I could get the cats to eat bone broth? That would be so good for them. I'm going to try putting some on their food.
Slept very nicely in my cave. Back is all better. It is beastly humid but not hot, although the heat is supposed to build up again. I am going to start my work cycle tomorrow and I am greatly relieved to have the A/C! I will be able to sleep and the white noise it provides will block the horrid woodchipper.
